Hello Evrybody, I'm new here , I hope you all will guide me in implementing ISO 9001.

Actually i've been appointed as A a QMR. I did'nt have the experience being a QMR. So i Need you all help with this.

My current company want to get the ISO Certification end by this year. The good news is, the company already have their Quality Manual & the Quality Procedures. But the problem is the manual still in review process by the top management and their quality procedure already distributed. it's legal?

Welcome to the Cove.

It would be a miracle if you get it right the first time. Most documents under go a continuous change / modification / trial / review until you get it ready or are finalized. Nothing wrong with what you have or are doing.

Welcome to the Cove mirwan. You'll get a lot of good help.

If I may ask, what is your background? Is it in quality, auditing, inspection, calibration, etc or is it in another discipline?
Is the certification you are seeking ISO 9001:2008?
In General what industry are you in? (Manufacturing, service, warehousing/distribution etc)

As to the issue of "legal" there really isn't a problem with what you are doing. The ISO system in general says what needs covered but not how to do it. So there is wide latitude. As Harry said you will be doing a lot of revising as you go through the process.

Have you ever done any auditing?

Sorry if it seems I have more questions than answers but these things will help us to guide you and answer your questions and possibly even anticipate problem areas.

Peace
James

This is fine. My first sytem I implemented we purposely documented all of our work instructions, then our procedures, and our quality manual last. This made sure that we fully understood where documents were referring to other documents and how they all interacted. Welcome to the wonderful world of QMS.:bigwave:
